Best Picks for the 2020 Rio Open Men’s Singles
While the Rio Open is an ATP 500 tournament, it hasn’t drawn too many big names.
The long trip to South America combined with the less attractive surface means that the field consists mostly of clay specialists.
Number 2 seed Matteo Berrettini has withdrawn from a third straight tournament.
The number 3 seed, 2018 Rio Open champion Diego Schwartzman, has also withdrawn.
The defending champion and number 4 seed, Laslo Djere, followed suit and joined the two.
1. Dominic Thiem
2020 record: 7-3, 0 titles
2020 prize money: $1,693,524
2019 Rio Open Result: First round.
The 2017 Rio Open champion, Thiem has confirmed his entry in this year’s tournament after skipping the last two clay events in South America.
Facing a significantly weaker field following the withdrawals, the Austrian is the clear favorite by a considerable margin.
This will be Thiem’s first appearance since the heartbreaking loss in the Australian Open final to Novak Djokovic.

Back on his best surface, the world number 4 has a very good chance of reclaiming the crown.
Thiem was upset in the first round last year by the eventual champion, Laslo Djere.
He should have a much better result this year, and it’s difficult to imagine a different outcome other than Thiem lifting the trophy by the end of the week.
2. Cristian Garin
2020 record: 5-5, 1 title
2020 prize money: $260,049
2019 Rio Open Result: Second round.
Elevated to the number 3 seed, Garin is back in action after skipping Buenos Aires last week.
The young Chilean is coming off his third career title, won two weeks ago at the Cordoba Open.
A clay specialist, Garin finds himself in familiar territory once again, and should also benefit from the weaker field of players.
The Chilean player had only won one of his five matches heading into Cordoba.
He is now riding a four-win streak, and, despite sitting out a week, should carry plenty of momentum heading into this tournament.
3. Casper Ruud
2020 record: 6-3, 1 title
2020 prize money: $230,957
2019 Rio Open Result: Quarterfinals.
The Next Gen star is coming off his first career ATP Tour title.
Ruud won the Buenos Aires Open last week, dropping only one set during the entire competition.
A clay specialist, the Norwegian was coming off two first-round exits at the ASB Classic and at the Australian Open but found the way on his best surface.
Ruud did well during the ATP Cup, defeating top 20 players John Isner and Fabio Fognini.
The youngster advanced to the main draw from the qualifying round last year, and made it to the quarterfinals, losing to eventual runner-up Felix Auger-Aliassime.
Facing a slightly weaker field, Ruud has a good chance of making another deep run and could also challenge for the title.
